Addition of advanced “X” plate technology offers improved energy savings, reliability and comfort, delivers optimal thermal performance

As part of Bell & Gossett’s Building Better platform and commitment to sustainability, the addition of advanced, high-efficiency “X” plates enhance Bell & Gossett’s new gasketed plate and frame heat exchanger GPX P45, P55, P86 and P110.

Engineered for efficiency, “X” plate technology increases heat transfer thermal performance up to 20%, reduces surface area up to 20% and reduces materials up to 15%. Through advanced plate design and superior heat transfer characteristics, this new offering meets a critical need for the growing demand in modern HVAC applications.

“Bell & Gossett is committed to meeting modern commercial building HVAC challenges head-on with innovative heat transfer solutions,” said Jim Klimek, global product manager – heat transfer, Xylem. “The addition of ‘X’ plates to our GPX product portfolio will allow us to meet industry demand for high-efficiency solutions along with increased flexibility through a more compact design compared to a traditional plate heat exchanger.”

Standard options include a variety of high-efficiency plate corrugations, material options of 304SS, 316SS or titanium plates, and nitrile or EPDM gaskets. GPX models have higher surface area to volume ratios than conventional shell and tube heat exchangers. Application flexibility allows for maximum efficiency in less space, and the “true” countercurrent flow maximizes the mean temperature difference between fluids. Additionally, the unique plate design generates high turbulence resulting in high heat transfer coefficients.

Gasketed plate and frame heat exchangers (GPX) are available in the ESP-Thermal heat exchanger selection program. To learn more about Bell & Gossett’s Building Better platform and its commitment to future-proofed solutions, visit
